It's another day for you and me in para------------waitaminnit! How did that 
song get in my head?????

Anywho (#10?) , I just wanted to pass along a quick reminder for Cracked
Anvil in Smythkepe next weekend.  This year's  theme is "A Day in the Life"
(and no, we didn't think twice about it).

We'll have out usual assortment of Heavy Waepons and Rapier Fighting, plus
an assortment of classes to hopefully please one and all:

Light Box Construction
Introduction to Herbs
Carving Soapstone
Beginng and Intermediate Dance
Introduction to List Ministering
Beginning Embroidery
Adapting Mundane Patterns
Introduction to Period Games

Our A&S Theme is "Everyday Life in the Middle Ages"  Documentation is
required and entries will be judged using Kingdom A&S Rules.  Please, NO
Alcoholic entries since this is a Dry Site.

And you will be staying for Feast, no? Lord Cinaed of Eden is preparing what
promises to be a filling and fulfilling feast featuring pork loin, venison,
barley & rice pilaf,  creme brulle tarts, fruit tarts, and "Joe Froggers"
(molasses spice cookies, not frog legs). If you partook of the winning
entries at the Diamond Wars cooking competition last year, this will be at
least as good, if not better. Please remember to bring your feast gear
(including bowls).

And yes, we will have merchants including Old World Merchants, All the
Trimmings, That Special Touch, Markplatt von Otto, and possibly a few more.

There will also be a Silent Auction to raise funds for the Gleann Abhann 
Royal Travel Fund.
